Generate ivt binary for use when running an imx6 SoC in HAB mode. Helper towards signing kernel images.

loadaddr int. Hex representing load address in ram for uboot.
Can be obtained from your u-boot.cfg build file.
image_file string. filename and path to binary image. If
generating ivt for signing kernel image, ensure kernel
image file is pre-padded.
Generates binary file called ivt.bin which can be appended to kernel.
